Ultimate bicycle horn
Do you ever find yourself wishing you had a nice, loud horn to wake up a zombie driver? Hardly a day goes by, that I wouldn't put one to good use! (I've got a sweet squealing after-market air horn on the motorcycle that does the job quite nicely.)
The "Hornster" is definitely overkill, for a bike. But it's pretty awesome. Dude took a train horn and mated it with a scuba tank for compressed air supply. (I know what you're saying... "Why didn't I think of that?!!" Yeah, I'm kickin' myself, too!)
The sad reality is... it's a little impractical. The gear is both heavy and bulky. The horn-equipped bike can be had for a mere $8000. Read about it HERE. (Check out the video clip. You may notice, like I did, that the rider has some protective earmuffs on. Good idea.)
